The Columbus Park of Roses has an extensive selection of roses, set among beautiful trees in the excellent Whetstone Park. Whetstone Park is in Clintonville, perhaps ten minutes north of Ohio State on High Street.
USA Today has called the garden “one of the largest and most celebrated municipal rose gardens in the United States.”
Whetstone Park would be an excellent place for a jog, and the rose garden is an excellent place for a contemplative walk for those who aren't rose lovers, or for families and friends to take a beautiful stroll.
Be careful about visiting in the morning, when the roses often are sprayed by truck.
There is ample free parking at the rose garden.
After touring the rose garden, an enjoyable stop is Clintonville's Mozart's Bakery and Piano Cafe for a snack at one of the best bakeries in Columbus. Mozart's also has a Vienna Ice Cafe store at the location. Mozart's deluxe ice cream obviously offers a cold relief after a tour of the rose garden on a hot day.
